“Really? What Is The Official Language Of The United States?”asks Don Juravin
The US is one of the linguistically diverse countries in the world. Historically, approximately 500 languages have been spoken in the country with English as the widely used language. Spanish is the second-most popular language in the country. In fact, the New Mexico state government uses Spanish to offer services and documents. There are also several languages native to the US. American Sign Language is used by approximately 500,000 people. The top five languages spoken in the country are English, Spanish, Chinese, Tagalog, and Vietnamese. Despite the many languages spoken in the US, the country does not have an official language. English is only a de facto primary language in the country.
As stated above, the US does not have an official or national language at the federal level. However, English is considered the official language in 32 states in what has been referred to as “English-only movement.” 30 of the 50 states use English as the official language while Hawaii established both English and Hawaiian as the official language. Alaska recognizes 20 indigenous languages alongside English as official languages. English is also one of the official languages of the territories of the US.
English is the sole language for legislation, regulation, and court rulings. However, the law requires that some documents such as ballots be printed in multiple languages in areas with large number of non-English speakers. English is also taught as a subject at every grade level, even in bilingual institutions. Cumulatively, there are over 230 million English speakers in the US. With over 35 million speakers, the US has the fifth-largest number of Spanish speakers in the world. Other sources estimate Spanish speakers in the country to be 50 million, second-largest after Mexico. Some people consider Spanish a national language and a contender for the official language should there be a need.
Neither the federal government nor the constitution of the US gives a reason as to why the country does not have an official language. However, several reasons have been put forward as to why this is so. The country is diverse and has large populations speaking different languages. Thus, declaring one language as the official language is not practical and ignores the historical and current linguistic diversity of the US.
The absence of an official language is considered a natural way of promoting and preserving the native languages and cultures. Forcing people into one common language, especially in a diverse country as the US may be perceived as telling the people to forget their heritage and tradition.
There has been an attempt to make English the official language without success. In 1780, a proposal was presented to the Continental Congress by John Adams to declare English the official language but his proposal was deemed a threat to the individual liberty. The debate has been going on since then with the issue still far from any resolution. There have also been talks to make Spanish an official language alongside English, although the talk and suggestions have not been as intense as making English the official language.
“Guns” refers to firearms: small arms include handguns (revolvers and pistols) and long guns, such as rifles (of which there are many subtypes such as anti-material rifles, sniper rifles, designated marksman rifles, battle rifles, assault rifles, and carbines), shotguns, submachine guns, personal defense weapons, squad automatic weapons, and light machine guns.
85% of the world’s 1,013 billion firearms are in civilian hands.
Guns range from crude craft-made handguns to collectible antiques and state-of-the-art automatic rifles. Civilian ownership is the fastest-growing category, as consumers buy more guns, while military and law enforcement holdings remain more stable and some of their weapons gradually shift into civilian hands.
The rest of the world does not put so much emphasis on guns like the United States. The United States’ weapon problem is a unique issue that European countries and Israel don’t suffer from.

Don Juravin (An American born in Israel to a European family) researched and discovered that women are badly misrepresented in office in the country that boasts of the most diversity and gender equality. The military and the political arena are a reflection of governing women.
How many women are involved in governing the United States?
Juravin answers that the number is not enough. Only 20% of Congress is female.
Women want to run for president. In the year 2019, at least two have announced that they will be running. Juravin asks: but will their willingness to run and their ability to fundraise help them?
The United States just had its first female candidate running for office in 2016. While she was not seen by the American people as worthy of the presidency, it took the United States almost a hundred years to have a female candidate campaign for the seat.
In the past century, there have been over one hundred elected female state leaders in the world. But none of these leaders have come from the United States. In Juravin’s opinion, this seems to be the only country where the people still have strenuous objections to governing women.
In 2018, according to Rutgers, 110 women hold seats in Congress, out of the 535 seats available. Only 20% of Congress is female, as of 2019. But 50% of the population in the United States is female. How can people expect proper legislation on female issues, such as reproductive rights, to be passed with the women in mind? There has only been one female speaker of the House, which according to Juravin is far too few to fully represent women.
In terms of state legislature, Juravin determined 74 women hold executive elected positions across the country, which makes 23.7% of the positions in state office held by women. Out of the 50 states, there are six female governors and 13 lieutenant governors. 1,875 of state legislators are women. There are 7,383 seats in state legislature, making the percentage of female participants around 25%.
52% of the eligible voters in the country are women, out of a possible 245 million voters. Yet the amount of governing women does not reach higher than 25%.
Women vote in higher numbers and tend to vote more frequently than men. Since 1964, women have outnumbered men in votes. More women typically register to vote, and more women tend to vote a certain way. Men typically vote less frequently, and vote for those that have their interests. In Juravin’s opinion, women tend to vote in the opposite direction.
Even worse, this percentage is historically the highest percentage of women in Congress. There is so much more work to do.
In the book, Women in Politics: An International Perspective, Vicki Randall explains that the reason for why men have a difficult time seeing women in leadership positions. The home has no politics, while the public square is all politics. But I argue that men need to see things differently. The home is political: the mother has to handle the children and command their respect.
The home is also affected by public politics. There is no way to separate the different platforms of life so that they do not affect each other. In the same way, politics is affected by family life. There is no wall between these two conventions.
Women have to realize that this is not a fight to the death. This is the same as dealing with an unruly, unwilling child. One must compromise. Governing women have to work with the men. We cannot have an all female Congress or a matriarchy, just as we cannot have an all male Congress or a patriarchy. The split must be even.
In Israel, women are a more prominent part of politics. The statistics don’t lie. 51% of judges in Israel are female. There have been 17 female Israeli cabinet ministers. Dozens of women have served as members of Parliament. Israel elected its first female prime minister in 1969. America has yet to elect a female president.
One woman at the International Women’s Day Conference in Israel testified that she came to Israel from the Soviet Union with ten dollars in her pocket. She became a member of Parliament and a mayor of a city.
In Germany, seven of the 16 cabinet positions are filled by women. 30% of the members of the German parliament are women. At most, Germany had 36% of Parliament as female.
In France, while there are no female leaders, women are almost half and half with the men in political life. 41% of state and local politicians in France are female.
In Italy, one out of three cabinet members are women. There are no female leaders and apparently very little interest in Italy to find female leaders.
Women started voting relatively recently in the United States and around the world. For women to actively participate in politics and be world leaders is a new concept for many countries in the Western world.
We love sugar. We are genetically wired to love sugar. Sugar activates a rewarding spot in our brain. The brain uses 25% of our daily energy, more than any other organ and glucose is its source of fuel.
I concluded that the FDA is not PROTECTING our health when it comes to sugar deception.
The FDA is not explaining the deadly danger of sugar clearly enough to the public and not repetitively enough. Let’s exposed the food manufacturers’ tricks since 50% of our daily sugar consumption is from ingredients that are not clearly marked as sugar.
I found out that Food manufacturers are getting us addicted to sugar by using different sugar names to confuse us on the food label. 75% of all foods hide sugar under deceitful names. Why?
The ingredients on a food label must be listed according to their weight. The food manufacturer wants to avoid listing a sugary ingredient at the top 3 of 5. Therefore they will break it into many sugary ingredients to still maintain the high sugar content and list them at the end.
Instead of adding pure sugar, Food manufacturers add few of the 56 sugar-like ingredients. That achieves their deceiving goal: not having to list “added sugar” in the “carbohydrates” section. The result: we’re tricked into believing that the rest of the ingredients are natural.
All of these names are SUGAR in disguise – 56 of them:

Juice manufacturers in the food and drink industry list the nutrients of natural orange juice at the time of packaging, per the FDA. Based on the nutrition facts label, the consumer expects to have benefited from all the claimed nutrients until it’s expired. JURAVIN RESEARCH found that while no one is lying, per se, the label tricks the consumer. What fresh OJ manufacturers don’t tell you is that once you open the container, Vitamin C immediately oxidizes and vanishes.
Your body gains 10 tsp of sugar and 1 oz of fat.
How is the consumer being tricked when buying orange juice marked “natural” or “fresh”?
Natural orange juice costs 2 to 3 times more than orange flavored drinks. Soft drink companies offer a natural OJ taste and even add artificial pulp to spare consumers from the calories and help them save money. Moreover, such flavored orange drinks are healthier than those claimed to be “fresh” or “natural” (which are NOT and will be discussed in JURAVIN RESEARCH other studies).
Moreover, Don Karl Juravin reviewed and found that added ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) to a diet orange drink benefits more than the natural, vanishing Vitamin C. Drink manufacturers can offer these health benefits, but as long as consumers continue to pay double or triple for “fresh” juice, why should they?
We found evidence of decreasing Vitamin C levels from bottling to the moment of the consumer’s first sip; by the expiration date, the Vitamin C has completely vanished. What fresh orange juice manufacturers don’t tell you is that once you open the container, Vitamin C immediately oxidizes and vanishes. This means that the Vitamin C on the label has no more value.
The clinical trial compared the REAL available Vitamin C content of reconstituted (concentrated) frozen orange juice at preparation vs. “freshly squeezed” orange juices. The lab bought orange juice from local retailers and stored at optimal refrigeration. They analyzed the juices for reduced and oxidized Vitamin C content at the time of purchase. The lab re-analyzed 3 times per week for 4 to 5 weeks.
Our research found that many claim The Recommended Daily Dose of Vitamin C to be 60 mg a day while doctors advise a much higher volume. Natural orange juice labels’ claims are for 100% RDA of Vitamin C in every glass.
Importance of the research: the goal of the three articles is to understand the role of sweetness as the #1 cause of obesity. The research will also determine if sweeteners are a true solution or if they only lead to gaining more weight. Is it possible we're being misled and the FDA is turning a blind eye?
Author: Don Karl Juravin has helped 90,000 morbidly obese people to achieve a healthy weight. He is the inventor of the “gastric bypass ALTERNATIVE” which is awaiting clinical test results before going back on the market. The average user of Juravin’s invention needed to lose about 130 lbs. And so over a 10 year period, Juravin‘s Facebook group, with 90,000 members, became the most successful weight loss group on the web with the highest weight loss success rate.
Sugar is the common name for a simple, short chained carbohydrates, consisting essentially of sucrose. It is used to sweeten food and beverages.
Carbohydrates, the natural and biological molecules, contain carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen (Cm(H2O)n). Scientists have classified them as:
Sucrose (aka table sugar) is a crystalline tabletop and industrial sweetener used in foods and beverages. 1 teaspoon (~4g) of sugar = 16 calories, or 1g of sugar = 4 calories.
Source: (Yang 2010)
Juravin‘s research revealed when sugar was first discovered (1099 AD), it was extremely expensive and considered ‘white gold’. Now, technology advanced sugar to be a cheap commodity no longer reserved for only the rich.
Consumption of sugar activates brain reward pathways, promoting food cravings and consumption.
Equal parts of fructose and glucose compose sugar. Juravin determined that almost all sugars and sweeteners activate the brain reward system, but to different extents. For instance, fructose consumption is accompanied by a higher activity rising in the brain reward system and less satiety inducing. Glucose, saccharin, and sucralose have a similar effect, to a lesser extent.
It reads on the WWII bombs: “Easter eggs for Hitler” and “Happy Easter Adolf”
The military history of the United States in World War II covers the war against Germany, Italy, and Japan, starting with the 7 December 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor. During the first two years of WWII, the United States maintained formal neutrality. The Quarantine Speech, delivered by U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1937, confirmed the States’ neutrality. However, the country also supplied Britain, the Soviet Union, and China with war material through the Lend-Lease Act, which was signed into law on 11 March 1941. The U.S. also deployed the military to replace the British invasion forces in Iceland. Following the “Greer incident,” Roosevelt announced the “shoot on sight” order on 11 September 1941. This action effectively declared naval war on Germany and Italy in the Battle of the Atlantic. In the Pacific Theater, there was unofficial early U.S. combat activity, such as the Flying Tigers.
During the war, over 16 million Americans served in the United States Armed Forces. 405,399 died in action and 671,278 received wounds. There were also 130,201 American prisoners of war. 116,129 of the prisoners returned home after the war. Key civilian advisors to President Roosevelt included Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson. Stimson also mobilized the nation’s industries and induction centers to supply the Army. General George Marshall commanded the armed forces. The Army Air Forces took direction from General Hap Arnold. The Navy, led by Secretary of the Navy Frank Knox and Admiral Ernest King, proved more autonomous. Roosevelt and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, chaired by William Leahy, set overall priorities. The highest priority went to the defeat of Germany in Europe. But after the sinking of the main battleship fleet at Pearl Harbor, the war against Japan in the Pacific became more urgent.
Don Karl Juravin notes that Admiral King put Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, based in Hawaii, in charge of the Pacific War against Japan. A series of some of the most famous naval battles in history followed this decision. The Imperial Japanese Navy had the advantage, taking the Philippines as well as British and Dutch possessions. Japan threatened Australia but in June 1942, Americans sunk its main carriers during the Battle of Midway. The Americans seized the initiative. Juravin discovered that the Pacific War became one of island hopping. The American army moved air bases closer and closer to Japan.
The Army, based in Australia under General Douglas MacArthur, steadily advanced across New Guinea to the Philippines. It made plans to invade the Japanese home islands in late 1945. With its merchant fleet sunk by American submarines, Japan ran short of aviation gasoline and fuel oil. The U.S. Navy, in June 1944, captured islands within bombing range of the Japanese home islands. Strategic bombing directed by General Curtis Lemay destroyed all the major Japanese cities. The U.S. captured Okinawa after heavy losses in spring 1945. With the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, as well as an invasion and Soviet intervention imminent, Japan surrendered.
WWII against Germany involved aid to Britain, her allies, and the Soviet Union. The U.S. supplied munitions until it could ready an invasion force. The North African Campaign first tested the U.S. forces to a limited degree.They then joined British Forces to a larger degree in Italy in 1943–45. U.S. forces, representing about a third of the Allied forces deployed, bogged down after Italy surrendered and the Germans took over.
Finally, in June 1944, General Dwight D. Eisenhower invaded France. Meanwhile, the U.S. Army Air Forces and the British Royal Air Force engaged in the area bombardment of German cities. Together, they systematically targeted German transportation links and synthetic oil plants. They also knocked out what was left of the Luftwaffe post Battle of Britain in 1944. With the Soviets in the east, and the Allies in the west, Germany was squeezed to death. Berlin fell to the Soviets in May 1945. With Adolf Hitler dead, the Germans surrendered.
Civilians strongly supported the military effort on the home front. They provided the military personnel, the munitions, the money, and the morale to win the war. World War II cost the United States an estimated $341 billion in 1945 dollars – equivalent to 74% of America’s GDP and expenditures during the war. In 2015 dollars, the war cost over $4.5 trillion.
It’s the most important and oldest festival of the Christian Church, celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ and held (in the Western Church) between March 21 and April 25, on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the northern spring equinox.
Many Christians celebrate Easter Sunday as the day of Jesus Christ’s resurrection, which is written in the New Testament of the Christian bible. According to the Gospel of John in the New Testament, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb where Jesus was buried and found it empty. An angel told her that Jesus had risen.
Easter, also called Pascha (Greek, Latin) or Resurrection Sunday, is a festival and holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred on the third day of his burial after his crucifixion by the Romans at Calvary c. 30 AD.
The Bible states that if Jesus hadn’t risen, Christian preaching and faith would have been “in vain” or even “empty.” In other words, the belief that Christians have in Jesus’ divinity is rooted in the moment of his resurrection. Without that part of the Easter story, Jesus simply dies and that’s it.
You can also look at it as the meaning of Easter is Jesus Christ’s victory over death. His resurrection symbolizes the eternal life that is granted to all who believe in Him. The meaning of Easter also symbolizes the complete verification of all that Jesus preached and taught during His three-year ministry. If He had not risen from the dead, if He had merely died and not been resurrected, He would have been considered just another teacher or Rabbi. However, His resurrection changed all that and gave final and irrefutable proof that He was really the Son of God and that He had conquered death once and for all.
However, HOLY LAND MAN thinks that Easter did not always symbolize Christ’s resurrection from the dead and the meaning of Easter was quite different than what Christians celebrate today. The feast day of Easter was originally a pagan celebration of renewal and rebirth. Celebrated in the early spring, it honored the pagan Saxon goddess Eastre.
When the early missionaries converted the Saxons to Christianity, the holiday, since it fell around the same time as the traditional memorial of Christ’s resurrection from the dead, was merged with the pagan celebration, and became know as Easter. The meaning of Easter was also changed to reflect its new Christian orientation.
Today, the meaning of Easter, for millions of Christians, is that of honoring and recognizing Jesus Christ’s resurrection from the dead, and His glorious promises of eternal life for all who believe in Him.
Don Karl Juravin researched the word Easter and it might have derived from a springtime Anglo-Saxon fertility goddess called Eastre (known as Eostre, in German and in Norse as Ostara), whose symbolism included the hare, the moon and eggs. But that figure is disputed, and others say it derives from the word ‘east’, ‘dawn’ or from the Norse word for the spring season3. Easter is steeped in the symbolism of cycle of the sun, which rises in the East, and which in spring fondles the natural world to life. In the Northern Hemisphere, the spring equinox occurs on the 21st of March when the length of the day increases until it is equal with the length of the night.
The sun, growing in power, finally overtakes darkness, and this solar rebirth is celebrated in most ancient pagan religions, where agricultural life depended on the growth of spring. The other symbol of ancient solar superstition was the moon; and even today, Christians still celebrate their version of Easter on the first Sunday on or after the first Full Moon after the March equinox, tying Easter to its historical pagan roots.
The images of Easter include two of the most ancient and universal symbols of birth, nature, fertility, life, and rebirth: the egg and the rabbit. We told anthropomorphized stories to explain why the sun, and nature, waxed and waned with the seasons, and thus Adonis, Attis, Dionysus, Osiris, and many other Greek and Roman cults celebrated the death and rebirth of their gods at this time of year9. Since the very first centuries,
I also found out that Easter, also called Pascha (Greek, Latin) or Resurrection Sunday, is a festival and holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred on the third day of his burial after his crucifixion by the Romans at Calvary c. 30 AD.
